Story of the Euro by Annalisa Piras in the ARTE Mediathek

15 December 2021. On 1 January, the Euro turns 20. To mark the occasion, the award-winning Italian-British film director and journalist Annalisa Piras, for years a dedicated participant and moderator of the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium, tells the story of the Euro through the voices of its founding fathers. Piras presents the story through a transnational perspective, but not without analysing its weaknesses, shortcomings, missed opportunities and dangers for the future.

With her film, she paints “the most comprehensive picture ever made of something that is not just a currency, but a symbol of unity and peace for some and a curse for others.”

The (German and French language) documentary is available in the ARTE Mediathek until 16 December.
